a crisis. a trillion dollar deficit and not enough to force action. we still pay very little interest and the interest bill is shrinking. the primary deficit that we run up every year has been shrinking for two years straight and will shrink a lot if we go over the fiscal cliff. i am not in the absence of a crisis. >> looking at what boehner just did, obama will be blame for the highest increase in history. i'm not optimistic that we are going to go over the cliff. it seems that way. baner and the gop are highly unpopular and 11% approval rate. obama is very popular. 57% from cbs and 54% from abc. is boehner correct that the president will get blamed for the tax increase. they trust the way the president is dealing and don't trust the way the gop is dealing. >> that's the first time boehner and drop the mike have been used. >> that's right. >> leave it to him. >> i think the great challenge for obama is he wants consensus and they want to sign on to a tax increase and whatever deal and not run against it. they will sign on to something and run against it anyway. they at of them who vo

are our children. and we're going to have to come together and take meaningful action to prevent more tragedies like this, regardless of the politics. this evening, michelle and i will do what i know every parent in america will do which is hug our children a little tighter and we'll tell them that we love them. and we'll remind each other how deeply we love one another. but there are families in connecticut who cannot do that tonight. and they need all of us right now. in our days to come, the community needs us to be at our best as americans and i will do everything in my power as president to help. because while nothing can fill the space of a lost child or loved one, all of us can extend a hand to those in need, to remind them that we are there for them. that we are praying for them. that the love they felt for those they lost endures not just in their memories, but also, in our ours. may god bless the memory of the victims and in the words of spriccher heal the broken hearted and binds up their wounds. >> that is an emotional president obama speaking just now about the mass shoot

, and as those killed in newtown are laid to rest, now is the time for action. >> that's the picture. that's the emotion that will pull this thing. >> the voices of reason cannot be silenced. >> record sales of these firearms. >> they advertise armor-piercing bullets. >> enough is enough. >> an ak-15, i'm not sure we need that. >> assault weapons account for less than 2% of the murders in this country. if you're in that 2%, you know, believe me, i understand that. >> do they want to be saying two years from now, which they will, and four years from now, as the party of glocks. >> the second amendment culture has been totally

. this is a huge action by the supreme court today wading fully into the issue of same-sex marriage. so it's going to mean that this will be an absolute blockbuster term. >> pete, can you talk a little bit about what it means to take two cases in this way at the same time? we know from the aca decision that justice roberts cares deeply about his legacy and the legacy of the court. how do we read that into this discussion? is he going to want to be part of a decision stripping rights away from people, and then he looks into the future and he's in a case like people look back and say he was the chief justice when they took rights away from millions of americans. >> reporter: we can read nothing into any specific justice's thinking about the fact they took up the defense of marriage act. that was a foregone conclusion. whenever you have federal courts that happened here, striking down an account of congress saying it's unconstitutional, the fact the supreme court would agree to hear the case was a given. the surprise here is they've agreed to take the prop 8 case from california because i think it's

to decline and less money for political action and there's a cynical political motive and i just want to put this all in perspective. if we could put the chart back up that was just on the screen. as union membership declined in this country, right along with it, middle class share of the income has declined. and i know the story is not that simple. but the decline of labor in this country has been a very important piece of the story of the decline of the middle class and rising inequality in the country. paul krugman has an article talking about profits as a share of national economy surging while the share of national income going to labor through wages and other composition is declining so union rights major major part of that story. >> nomenclature issue is important here. typical republican naming of things. right to work please. this is the right to not join the union that made the workplace better. when you join a workplace, the union made improvements to the situation you may not even realize or notice at that point. they'll protect you in the future from things you don't know are fo

calling for more guns and rejecting real action against gun violence. at a defining historic moment for our nation demanding courageous leadership the nra has declined to step forward as a credible and constructive partner. >> reporter: so at the very least a tone deaf statement from the nra today and really inflamed and energized the proponents of gun control here on capitol hill. >> thank you very much. let's bring in bloomberg "newsweek" senior writer and is the author of "glock the rise of america's gun." the nra blamed everything but the gigantic number of guns in america a situation which they worked very hard to create. they blamed video games, music, nobody watches music videos any more. they had the audacity to roll out a new product guns for every school. that's good for business. are you surprised of the tact they took today >> yeah. even i was surprised and i've written about these issues for many years. i thought the nra was going to be conciliatory for at least a day two. the fact they went straight to the mattresses and declared war on everybody in sight from the medi

. obviously cared about safety of kids as you can see by the actions of the staff. you know, but it's too early to tell, you know, it really takes a thorough analysis to tell whether we think something went well or not. you have to have the facts and too early to make those types of assessments but clearly they did a lot of things right and worked hard at it. we can reduce the odds of death and serious injury in schools and our schools are i think doing a very good job of that overall in spite of tragedies like this. >> you work with schools and campuses in general and to broaden it out for a second, one thing is if we're talking about an elementary school or a college or a high school or even just any other sort of setting, a movie theater, a shopping mall, what is it for individuals out there, if they were to find themselves in a situation like this, where they realize they near a building where a gunman is on the loose, what is the best thing an individual can do in a situation like that? >> it's what they do before the event to determine the likelihood of survivability. the daily habi

off the cliff. if you think that's a bad thing. the senate is back in action and the house has yet to receive a 48 hour heads up to return. john boehner said he refuses to call him back if there is no deal to vote on. he has given up hope and opting to work with senate democrats to push their bill from this past summer that extends rates on those less than $250,000. he failed to get his party behind a threshold and what are the odds this bill will pass. let's get the latest read on those not going on on capitol hill. luke, what is the latest? >> the latest is that there is aides i spoke to that think there is a 50-50 chance that the senate could get a small scale agreement on the floor the next few days and possibly be passed. that gets more and more unlikely as time goes by. harry reid is gauging interest with republican and democratic senators. he doesn't want to put anything on the floor that would not pass out of the senate. then he is asking republicans to vote for a tax increase for no reason. he wants assurances it would go down to the house floor and be gone for a vote. if

. well, mike just picking up on that point then, i guess that's the republicans all of their actions and pronouncements indicated that this, the timing and the sequence of this really matters to them in terms of, look, all the bush rates expiring on january 1st and doing anything before january 1st it's construed as a tax hike and believing the bush rates intact and then calling it a tax cut and seems to matter to them and completely share the skepticism to sign off on anything you're talking about but from the democratic perspective, the reporting s suggests obama putting on the table is 250 refundable. like that would be included, too. unemployment insurance. the dock first. the amt fix. included in anything. no matter what. i guess my question is, when you get the added leverage of the bush tax cuts expiring and the country probably blaming republicans for it, what is the rush for obama right now to do a deal? >> reporter: that is the suspicion that's shared by a lot of republicans taking it, steve, as almost an article of faith of three weeks, a month, that the president actually

, does it take scary stuff on the markets to force you to action? >> so i guess your colleague at "the washington post" today, matt miller, wrote a column and looking at the possibility or the prospect of sort of a p perpetual fiscal cliff and using the debt ceiling to force concessions. they, you know, used cliche they kicked the can down the road to the super committee and that blew up and now this and talk of a two-prong solution and then dealing with entitlements next year. it does seem like we just keep making, you know, small incremental decisions and then putting off somethingรง bigger r six months, a year, 18 months. when will the insanity stop on this? >> yeah. i mean, the thing is -- >> 300 calories! >> stop the insanity! >> that was -- that was susan powter. i knew we talked about it before the show and didn't know we would play it. when will we listen and stop the insanity? feel free to answer. >> yeah. look. you know, it's a real dynamic in place where it takes the horrible things to happen, a risk of a recession, of a debt ceiling, you know, defaulting on u.s. debt, it t

in a way that is designed even if he says we could only save one life, we have to take action. >> and tomorrow morning, one week after the elementary school shooting, the national rifle association, nra, will speak publicly for the first time since the tragedy. powerful gun lobby has long fought any effort to curb gun ownership but this week they promise to offer meaningful contributions to make sure that the tragedy never happens again and what do we think that looks like? let's put it through the spin cycle. i guess to start with the overall lay of the land i i applaud the president for the task force. i think joe biden is a good pick to head it up. frankly, though, i'm not particularly optimistic of action at the federal level particularly because the calendar is against them. there's a time period before there are recommendations issued and a while before activists can sort of coales around the proposals. right now support or stricter gun control at ten-year highs. abc news found 54% support. cbs found 57% support. that drops over time and i don't know by the time that the

the cyber investments so why not get in on the action? >> absolutely. >> what domain would you snatch up. let's backspin on it. >> what you got, susan? >> i did research. there's optimists out apparently romneyryan is still taken. now, what's interesting -- >> it could happen. >> is that romneyryan2016. >> it is. >> how about ryanromney 2016? >> i didn't look that one up. but i did look up bloomberg and bloomberg2016. since he's leaving and leaving an opening for 2013, i thought it's the holiday times maybe i should buy s.e. for mayor. it is available. >> i can't believe it. >> snatch that right up for her. >> i guess that means it's my turn to talk. >> you got something for us here, steve? >> this is supposed to be the fun segment and i will give you my idea of fun way may not be anybody else's idea of fun. first, i would say if i had to snatch up a 2016 domain name so i could extort these complains campaigns in the future my guess is hillary clinton and duvall patrick. i love just trying to come up with my mind what i think makes sense. i have cataloged them going back what my other on

or hearing. this is the age of taking action. viagra. talk to your doctor. >>> so you just heard how the u.s. continues to fall behind china and according to new numbers out today that goes for education, as well. unsurprisingly. eighth graders in the u.s. now rank ninth in math and tenth in science, well behind south korea and singapore. as many of you know, i have a daughter. she's about to start kindergarten and i'm worried about a decent school and a place to get her started on the right path and navigating application process, it is absolutely insane. we have essays, interviews, meetings. lots and lots of paperwork and keep in mind i'm doing this with a 4-year-old. for kindergarten. >> yep. >> i can't even imagine what it's like for her getting in to college so the idea of a tv show is to help you with the problems and me with my problems, too. >> that's the idea? >> why not. >> okay. so we booked kim vilasio, former applications director and author of "from preschool to grad school, strategies for success at any level of competitive admissions." so, kim, what are sort of the top keys

clinton does. the president's adviser are, hillary, the formidable run that is where the action is. >> i think hillary clinton is going to be the next president of the united states. i have said that before. going to be that the next four years, i want to talk about barbara walters because that moment about the hair and to the fat question to christie, too embarrassing. dereliction of duty. how what are you talking about, barbara? spend time with a person a very serious contender for the president of the united states, secretary of state, senator, talking about her hair? this is a media hurdle serious women have to go through and here's an example of sexism being inflicted on another woman by a woman and barbara goes on to say would you never ask a man that. so, why are you asking her that? do you even reck nism the sexism that you are activating and commenting on? no, you don't. i'm like cringing at this entire exchange. >> have all the good questions been asked? >> been asked. yes. yes. >> sorry, hillary, i got nothing. >> toure, you're black, why? >> absolutely asked. >> well, i have
